"I got this boat last year. I had never boated before, and I had to move docks because I was had a hard time docking my boat by myself. Sideshift's thrusters made boating just so much easier. Docking situations I used to avoid, became easy!"
Georgian Bay, ON, Canada
"Once we found Sideshift, it just made the experience so pleasant. The boat will nearly rotate on a dime. Sideshift gave me back my boating experience. "
Lake Pleasant, AZ, USA
"Works fantastic. As you would imagine, coming into a slip with two feet on one side and one foot on the other with a 58 ft houseboat in a crosswind can be a bit challenging! I used to sweat a lot bringing it in, but not anymore. I know, even in wind, I can do it with little problems. What a huge difference these make! Should be standard on every houseboat."
New Palestine, IN, USA
"I've got the PT360 Docking System, which includes the bow and stern thruster. The PT360 has completely changed our boating experience: I've got a very narrow slip to get in to, even made narrower because we put a lift in there. So having the PT360 gives me complete maneuverability regardless of wind, current ... it just makes things so much easier. It's a very straightforward installation process ... if you're handy and you take your time and you read the instructions; and what's great is that if you have any questions, get on the phone with the guys from Sideshift and they'll talk you through anything. They're great, absolutely fantastic customer service."

"I'm so happy for my Sideshift bow thruster. It makes docking so much easier - a pure pleasure! The best comment I got from a guy on the bridge this weekend - "Wow, That's the quietest bow thruster I've ever heard!""
"I couldn't have been more satisfied with the entire purchasing process with Sideshift. Their customer service and technical support teams were very knowledgeable and patient with all of my questions and concerns. Installation was done entirely by myself while our 25' Harris Grand Mariner tri-toon was on it's lift at our dock. All instructions were clearly written along with drawings and photos to help identify each step. Parts were packaged exceptionally well and the complete unit arrived without one scratch and with almost everything needed for my particular installation. All components exposed to the environment appear to be either stainless steel, anodized or powder-coated. We have many restaurants around the Lake of the Ozarks here in Missouri and their various docks can get pretty congested on the weekends. Add a little wind to the equation, and docking can be a real challenge. I know that the Sideshift will make anyone look like a pro - whether you are pulling in or backing in."
Gravois Mills, MO, USA
"Absolutely fantastic from order to installation. As advertised, it's made docking pretty much stress-free. I'm a satisfied customer, keep up the great work."
Kuwait City, Kuwait
"Installation was just as stated. DIY and simple. Customer Service/Tech support is over the top. Total game changer. Docking is a snap. My boat is a Motor Yacht so a huge canvas that was always taken by the wind. Now I have no anxiety about docking. I do not know how you can improve on perfect because this company is as close as one can get. I waited too long to buy this. I should have bought it earlier so I could get out more."
Sagamore Beach, MA, USA
"It’s working great. Docking and departing at home between jet ski docks."
Fords, NJ, USA
"Customer service is awesome. Pat was extremely helpful and I can't say enough about the results! Docking is way less stressful. Nobody in this area has Sideshift thruster yet, but I'm constantly talking about mine! Best addition ever."
Mentor, OH USA
"Works great. So much more confident when docking."
Stoney Creek, ON, Canada
"Customer service was great. I called and got help several times and spoke to someone right away. I installed a new battery bank and the stern thruster controls. The stern thruster works great on my Mainship 34 Mk1. These boats don't "spin on a dime" like some boats so it's great to have better control over the stern. It has made getting into and out of my marina slip much easier. Instead of dreading the marina slip, I now look forward to it."
Virginia Beach, VA, USA
"Very easy. The stern thruster, in conjunction with the bow thruster, makes backing into my slip a breeze. It has greatly reduced my wife’s stress level. I’m totally satisfied."
Beaufort, SC, USA
"Super easy!!!! I have a flybridge with a single motor. My bow thruster makes docking so easy."
Vermillion, OH, USA
"Great product and installation very easy...have floating dock so sat in canoe for the sterndrive work. Works great and interfaces well with the front existing quick thruster."
Berwick, VIC Australia
"The process of purchasing and installing the thrusters on my boat was seamless and very straightforward. The bow and stern thrusters work perfectly on my boat. I don't know how I managed in the past without them! Docking is effortless now, especially in the wind! They absolutely take the stress out of all docking situations. In my mind, there is no better upgrade to be made than the addition of Sideshift Thrusters. I am 100% more confident in any docking situation, and would have no hesitation docking by myself using your products. The wireless lanyard controller even allows me to untie the boat by myself and secure the ropes without the worry of the boat moving away from the dock. A simple push of the buttons keeps the boat in place while I get aboard and ready to go. Best investment for any boat!!"
Lindsay, ON, Canada
"I think that the Sideshift with the remote should be the new "marriage saver". The integration of the existing bow thruster with the stern thruster and the remote, makes locking and docking so much easier. Our first trip bringing the boat home was over 30 locks, the remote made is very easy for me to handle the rear lines while my wife worked the bow."
Orleans, ON, Canada
"Customer service was fantastic. Working great, exactly what I was looking for. Makes docking a breeze in my 25FT Bennington Pontoon Boat. Great product fairly priced for an Australian Customer"
Brendale, QLD, Australia
"Purchase was easy. I was communicating directly with the CEO, who responded immediately to my questions and made the appropriate recommendation. Installation took about a day with the help of the detailed instruction booklet and videos, it went relatively smoothly. Works as advertised. The product is made well. The hardware is all top quality. I’m thrilled with my experience. Wouldn’t change a thing."
Cherry Hill, NJ, USA
"Purchase was easy and straight forward. Thruster is working great, no issues. Has reduce docking stress!"
